of civility came from and what we can do to make it better. >> first, america has always had issues. walt whitman used to talk about "an athletic democracy." things were rugged. we debated immigration in the 19th century quite vigorously. we debated slavery and other fundamental things. we had more than a little violence. the vice president of the united states shot dead the secretary of the treasury. that is very similar. what is different today is that new communications technology -- the profoundest of the issues of the day -- some debilitating aspects of american politics. a lot of this relates, to me, very intriguing lead. we think of issues. our founders were probably, of all generations of people other than maybe fifth century b.c. that talked about not just the rights of man but the nature of man. they looked at people with all their foibles. that is why we developed this system of all these checks and balances in government. but i think that the nature of politics is something that deserves a lot of attention. i like the words come up with a little different meaning, of walt whit
are not getting weight from that because this is america. try to think of that issue without in your own mind is getting involved with how you feel about the question of people staying on death row for 20 years. it is very hard. that will in fact come into the matter in anybody's thinking about it. i am simply underline what you said. it is likely to be more technical and not necessarily less important. they can be terribly important matters where the laws of other countries are an issue. but it does usually -- it is a somewhat less volatile or politically less controversial issue. >> i have one question on what you spoke about today. it is a question that maybe you would set aside and ask somebody else, but i am afraid i have a question about what you say. there is nobody else to go to for the answer. it is about whether a treaty would require legislation to become implemented will. the constitution, needless to say, having grown up in a treaty organization that was created by treaty that gave them more credibility at the table. the question is -- if the constitution says that a treaty requi
, can he reposition himself as america's president? >> i think he is going to try to do that. >> i think the message is going to be, i'm willing to make tough decisions. >> he's going to try and could work with the democrats and the independents, not too sure about the republicans. >> i think he is going to say we are making government work. deficit commission could be a key part of that strategy. i think it is very helpful, especially when you talked about, beginning to build a cast for value-added tax. chris: do young voters care about this? we have two big white house correspondents. why is barack obama not doing the big presidential press conferences, the kinds that presidents do in the east room. surprisingly, richard nixon reportedly liked the chance to jousting with the press. here he is. >> if you are a lawyer and given the state of the situation and what you do, could you give us some reason why the american people shouldn't believe that that was at least a subtle attempt to bribe the judge in that case and gave at least the appearance of a lack of moral leadership. >> the only
and fast downward. it got down to 7% by '84 and got reagan re-elected with morning in america. this economy, what i keep waiting for is some big explosion of jobs whether it's the dotcom sectser or something where people want to buy a new car, they want to buy a new appliance. i don't sense there is any place people are wanting to buy something new and get it in their home. >> with the exception of the ipad you really have a real problem with innovation. every time we've got an out of and we needed to recover, out of a real recession, there has been some form of innovation, technology or something else and we haven't had that. so, it's really hard to sort of look down the tunnel and see a light there that really shows enormous growth. i think frankly, i don't mean to rain on the parade but i think that is the issue right now. and why by the way, your views on this, why the president is engaging again on health care and again on tv on glenn beck and everything else, at a time when he's just scored on health care where he's scoring on the economy, where he's probably going to put up points on
on america? >> right. it is. >> and if we can't manipulate our children with cartoon characters into begging parents to spend money, what kind of society are we? >> do you know what it is? mcdonalds is big, cheap affordable, successful. jim what do you think? do you eat at mcdonalds? i loved it. >> no. i'm not a big fan. i mean, look at ronald mcdonald. it's not realistic that. clown eats there he's going to be a big fat slob. make a big fat ronald. he's got a michael phelps body and he's too creepy. >> do you know what the thing is? i met actually ronald mcdonald. the real one in 1970s in belmont california like a big deal. he was like my hero. >> he's probably dead now it wasn't rely a mcdonald autos is there only just one? >> there was and i met him in a park. >> it was strange. the only mcdonalds van i ever saw. >> he gave you a free cheese burger. >> he did. it didn't taste like cheese thchl evil laid gee blaming mcdonalds for what parents should be responsible for. i imagine you think i'm wrong? >> i support this. i do this that we're going the way of antismoking a. we do need to have
question. to those viewers watching this in the heartland of america, we are in my hometown of manhattan and i love it. it is important to appreciate that the dynamic you are describing which is far left liberals, progressives which is different to as corporal terms so i'm not going to use progressive but liberals believe criticizing obama on the left while the far right is convinced president obama is a secret socialist. the far left think he is a corporate sellout, so a real little reality check for everybody to get your heads in how screwed up our political debate is in this country. there are folks on the left to believe they hated president bush on principle and now they think president obama is a sellout and among the net roots the center is under attack work of this dynamic is going on. does the same dynamic we see in the public-- republican party. now we really hate the common-- in the white house. again benjamin franklin said we must all doubt a little bit of our own infallibility. what you are describing is i believe the mirror image of a lot of folks in the conservative popula
. [laughter] i remember that we were on the receiving end of the contract for america for the worshiping bills to the senate, many of which never left the senate. very different approaches. it was kind of the young turks commit to the house. but there was a tension in the house because they had been in the minority for so long. there was a backlash has that changed. both sides are coming to a new reality. in every case, senator dole had cordial and productive relationships with all those members. some are more challenging than others. with his senate colleagues, there were quite candid, open, but where they needed to be he and mitchell could go at it on the floor. personally, they had and still do have a very good relationship. >> i think that we have time for one last question. >> you made reference to senator role been in what to read. i have wondered about the status of his health and the last few months. >> i saw him last on friday and spent a lot of time talking about politics. he had some knee surgery done. he was having problems with both knees. it was quite successful. he was going to
lecture on two kingdoms, how many cultures? the life of the church in post- christian america. [applause] >> i went back and listened to that interview with johnny cash when he died, and featured it on our of the agenda. he talked about the incarnation. you would not have thought johnny cash would talk about the incarnation. in 1939, just before england entered world war ii t.s. eliot gave it three lectures at cambridge, later assembled an nsa untitled "the idea of a christian society -- better assembled and entitled "the idea of a christian society." the fact that a problem will take a long time to solve and demand the attention of several mines for many generations is no justification to postpone the study. it is wise advice on many subjects. . . >> i want to talk about the nature and calling of the church and the world. within sites to many thinkers, some sociologists, philosophers, about how cultured art -- cultures are shaped and shape their members. reducing this talk as far as possible, i suggest american christians can best serve the health of american culture by striv
